I bought a Springfield 1911a1 Loaded SS looked to be in great conditon had a few cosmetic scratches buffed out easily.

It seems to not want to chambers rounds fully 4 out of 80 rounds hung half way . Thought it was Mag issues used them in another 1911 with no issues stripped and cleaned throughly not vey dirty .. the slide spring seemed weak so i ordered a OEM spec 16lb. spring

should arrive any a few days

Any thing else i should look for

Cases are not marred no obiviuos scuffs on the slide or ramp took a fine mesh steel wool and polished the ramp and throat.

Thanks in advance..

Do you ease the slide when you chamber the round? Have you checked the feed ramp if it's not smooth?

What ammo do you use? FMJ, SWC, etc.

Feeds manually fine just randomly hangs I also just retentioned the extractor after reading another post and video on YouTube. It was tighter than the video advised .I will go to the range in a few days to see if that helped.
